In light of these big events in our conference, we are asking that you be willing to make a two year commitment to serve as a voting member for the SB District at both the 2015 and 2016 Annual Conferences.


If you are interested in representing the SB District with voice and vote, please email a letter to the Rev. Dr. Maxwell explaining your involvement in the local church, district and conference level if any and why you are interested in representing the district.


Please be aware that submitting a letter of interest does not automatically make you a representative. There are always more people interested than spots available. The DS will go over the letters and make a prayerful decision.
